. scott brown is no better than even in massachusetts. other states where there were hoping to pick up north dakota, missouri, the candidates faltered. the numbers are not so good there. on the house side, democrats need 25, but they have a bunch of vulnerable incumbents. the number of seats where democrats are retiring could cause republicans to pick up as well. host: you were in missouri last week. what did you hear about the senate race? guest a once upon a time, claire mccaskill was the most democrats -- most vulnerable democrat, if not the most vulnerable incumbent. she had been very close with barack obama, and he was very unpopular in the state. and she had this controversy where there was an airplane owned by her family that was being written off for tax reasons. then came the republican primary and taught a can, he won in the primary somehow, though thought to be the weakest. then he had this unfortunate comment about how legitimate rate is not likely to cause pregnancy -- rape is not likely to cause pregnancy, becoming fodder for late-night comedians and giving heartburn to r

of standard operating procedure. you saw that scott brown, elizabeth warren debate last night in massachusetts. this is what campaigns do. this is what candidates do. but i will tell you that mitt romney has been behind closed doors for much of the day today, in debate preparations, brooke, with the sparring partner, ohio senator rob portman. and perhaps the day's most notable development in the day with not very many development is that they just stopped for lunch at chipotle. they put a wrap if you don't mind the pun, on the morning debate session. i'm sorry. i had to do it. >> puns aside, before we start focusing on tomorrow night in den denver, i want to look back at romney and obama. romney, maybe appearing a little more amped up than the president in these sxmexamples. let's watch and talk on the other side. >> you have a problem with al w allowing someone to finish speaking. i suggest if you want to become president of the united states, you got to let both people speak. let me speak. >> at the time when the war started you said it would be quick and easy. you said you knew where the w
all these big prices. >> reporter: california's governor jerry brown agrees it's an emergency. so he authorized an immediate switch to winter blend gasoline which can be more polluting but could soon bring down prices by 15 cents to 20 cents a gallon. relief drivers say they need. >> i had to cut back on the groceries in order to get some gas in order to get to work, get the kids to school. >> reporter: prices went up so quickly last week they sometimes seemed to change by the hour. >> in a week it's gone up about 52 cents. absolutely unprecedented from our perspective. >> reporter: the sharp rise was blamed on the supply squeeze that began after a fire shut down part of a chevron refinery in august. then a power failure knocked out an exxon refinery last week. with both refineries now back in operation, wholesale prices on the stock market have already started going down. when wholesale prices go up, the price at the pump seems to rise immediately. but when wholesale prices drop, there's usually a lag at the pump. so california drivers are likely to be paying near record high prices
's governor jerry brown taking emergency action as the state's prices have become -- well, they are the highest in the nation. connell: they certainly are. we go right now with fox news correspondent adam housely in l.a. with the latest. >> dagen and connell, you mentioned 4.66 a gallon or so, you would be hard-pressed to find that price in much of los angeles. in fact right here behind me you can see this gas station 4.99 for regular, 5.19 for premium. just down the street, the gas there is 5.39 for regular unleaded. across los angeles, in fact, i drove down the state yesterday from northern california to southern california, no matter where you drive, you're finding gas prices in the high 4s for regular unleaded. people are not happy at all. take a listen to some of the people that we have bumped into about how these gas prices are so extreme. >> just jump them up real quick and it takes forever to get them back down. pretty ridiculous. >> $10 in gas doesn't even give me a quarter of a tank. it's really out of control. i mean it is almost 5 bucks a gallon. >> -- [inaudib
governor brown rolling back regulations in a bid to drive prices down. should the president do the same? welcome, everyone, i am here for neil cavuto and this is "your world." california is fast becoming the poeter child if high gas prices but at the current pace $5, could be in everyone's future. and now, adam is in los angeles where there is plenty of pain at the pump. so, 50 cents in a week. what is going on? >>reporter: you are right. the president was down the secret from where we are and he drove by the gas stations headed through the state. i can tell you from northern california to southern california yesterday, no matter where you look, you will find prices like this and then a car obscuring the sign but it is $4.99 for regular. others, for regular, it $5.29 and even up to $5.49. it is difficult for a lot of drivers in california. three reasons: one, supply; two, the supply is tied to demand," several of the refineries in california are off line. the refineries make the special blend of gas that california requires that you can not buy from outside state line. when you talk to
it is dirty gas to the rescue. governor jerry brown approved a plan to let gas stations sell the winter blend a month early because there is plenty of it. even though the winter blend creates more pollution. which is why you're not supposed to use it when temperatures are cooler. sacrificing the environment to solve problems. would you think californians would get on their exboo, i don't know. let's turn to the former press secretary for arnold schwarzenegger on this. i'm being a little sar castic i think california deserves it. i'm so surprised. rather than carpooling. rather than getting on buys kest and telecommuting and working from home. they're using gasoline with more butane in it to get relief..3 what do you think?. >> in defense i rode rode my bicycle to work. melissa: steve, give a picture. i don't believe it. >> i will tweet it to you after this i absolutely did. melissa: good for you. >> give governor brown credit. he often gets criticized for siding with environmentalists against consumers and bbsinesses. this time he went the other way. good for him. we have the delicate balance
committee, georgia republican paul brown, a medical doctor, gave a sermon at a baptist church last month and addressed the issue of evolution. >> i've come to understand that all that stuff i was talk taught about evolution, embryology, big bang theory, all that is lies straight from the pit of hell. and it's lies to try to keep me and the folks who were taught that from understanding that they need a savior. there are a lot of scientific data that i found out as a scientist that actually showed that this is really a young earth. i don't believe that the earth has been around 9,000 years. i believe it was created in six days as we know them. >> well, bill nye, the science guy, had this to say in response to congressman brown's comments. quote, since the economic future of the united states depends on our tradition of technological innovation, representative brown's views are not in the national interest. he is by any measure, unqualified to make decisions about science, space, and technology. wow. ready for something really scary in one of brown's cohorts is todd akin who holds the theor
